Grady Hillhouse is a professional civil engineer and hobbyist everything else in San Antonio, Texas. Randall Munroe said, "You can look at practically any part of anything manmade around you and think, Some engineer was frustrated while designing this. It's a little human connection." My goal for Practical Engineering is to increase exposure and interest in the field of engineering. I'm trying to highlight that connection between the world around us and the energy, passion, and thought that goes into making it a nicer place to live.

Hydraulic transients (also known as water hammer) can seem innocuous in a residential setting, but these spikes in pressure can cause major damage to large pipelines and industrial pipe networks. In this video, we briefly discuss how water hammer occurs and how engineers mitigate the effect.

How to Make Free Energy Water Pump - Ram Pump

How to make a hydraulic ram pump which requires no electricity and no motor. NOTE : This pump uses falling water to lift a lesser amount of water to a higher elevation than the source. So, being primarily used for lifting relatively small amount of water to a higher elevation. if you want to deliver 2 cubic meter of water to an elevated location, you need at least 6 cubic meters of water to operate the pump 4 cubic meters of which will be used to drive the pump and goes directly as waste.

Boil Water at Room Temperature! - Hydrostatics

Engineers that work with fluids need a solid understanding of how they behave, and there’s one branch of fluid mechanics that plays a role in areas all across our lives. Whether you’re designing a water tower for a city or you just want to understand how those upside-down pet bowls work, you’ve got to know how to relate the depth and pressure of a fluid: hydrostatics.

How to Collapse a Pipe by Closing a Valve

Water hammer can work in both directions, and I only discussed one of those in the previous video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoLmVFAFjn4). Today's episode revisits that demonstration to show how water hammer can form a vacuum pressure in a pipe. Momentum carrying fluid away from a valve wants to keep going even after the valve is closed. This generates a negative pressure than can cause major damage! -Patreon: http://patreon.com/PracticalEngineering -Website: http://practical.engineering This video was sponsored by Skillshare.

How does land surveying work?

A primer on one of the most important companions to civil engineering: land surveyors. First 100 people to sign up will get three meals off their Blue Apron order free! Click here: http://cook.ba/2tNJ2b3 This video is sponsored by Blue Apron. Conventional measurement tools like a tape measure and protractor don't work for large civil structures and public works projects. Surveying is essentially the science of measuring big stuff. In this video I give a quick explanation of how surveying works and show a few ways you can do your own leveling survey at home. No sines, cosines, or tangents required! -Patreon: http://patreon.com/PracticalEngineering -Website: http://practical.engineering Marxist...

Groundwater Flow Demonstration Model

I was commissioned to build this model in support of a presentation about geotechnical engineering. The goal is to illustrate the flow paths that groundwater takes under an obstruction (e.g. a sheet pile or cutoff wall). So much of engineering is just theoretical work, so it was really cool to see such an elegant example of a geotechnical engineering concept borne out in real dirt and water. Thanks for watching and let me know what you think.

Sand Castle Holds Up A Car! - Mechanically Stabilized Earth

Dirt is probably the cheapest and simplest construction material out there, but it's not very strong compared to other choices. Luckily geotechnical engineers have developed a way to strengthen earthen materials with almost no additional effort - Mechanically Stabilized Earth (aka MSE or Reinforced Soil). If you look closely, you'll see MSE walls are everywhere. Thanks for watching, and let me know what you think!

Automatic Bell Siphon Explained

This is a demo of a bell siphon I built in collaboration with a couple of engineering professors. There are certain cases where it would be nice to be able to create a siphon without any intervention, a self-priming or automatic siphon: the next level of siphonry. It's built out of an acrylic sheet and a piece of clear pipe. Thanks to Rolf Hut and Pete Marchetto for inviting me to collaborate on their project.

How Soil Destroys Buildings

Okay this is the last video on the hazards of soil mechanics for a while :) Support for this video comes from Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/PracticalEngineering/ Expansive soils cause more property damage per year than earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, and tornadoes combined. Expansive soils are a slow-moving geologic phenomenon, which makes them not very news-worthy. However, they still cause a tremendous amount of damage to buildings and the public infrastructure we rely on every day.
